[Doggiebox] General OSX performance issues- slightly off topic

I hope I'm not crossing a line here, but I could use your input.
My G4 400 with 700 plus megs of RAM is under-performing, in my opinion.
I get loads of spinning beach balls, mostly after launching
applications, but sometimes just while perusing around in the finder. I
have a dedicated OSX partition, a User drive, a dedicated Swap drive,
and a dedicated OS9 partiton (where I hardly ever go). I've also got a
second drive where I save all my music and video work.
I'm running the latest Panther product, 10.3.7.
I'm thinking about a reformat this weekend and pitching the whole
concept of partitioning.
Without dragging this out into a lenthy off-topic discussion... any
Please reply off-list, if you don't mind.
